Excellent ice cream drinks. Very nice place to meet friends to talk, drink and enjoy the ambiance. Come as you are or dress up, does not matter.

Have made sure to go there every time we are in town. The ice cream is so good, and the decor is really cool. The worlds smallest sundae is absolutely tiny, (1 or 2 delicious bites) but a great cap to a meal. All the sundaes are great. My fave is the nutty Irishman. Consistent great service.

I've been there 3 times message now and it has been excellent every time. They have a large selection of ice cream martinis you will not find any where else. If you are visiting st louis take the time to visit The Fountain!

Sandwiches were OK but not spectacular. Their signature hot fudge sauce was the best I've ever had. Would like to go back and try the version that has Kahlua blended in it.

Really different types of foods of different countries; like a Moroccan pot pie. The ice cream concoctions are to die for and so is the lemonade with raspberry sauce. It can get a little crowded at lunch so we get there at about 11:30 to beat the rush. Excellent service and the waiters are very intelligible about the menu and... More

Just for fun we ordered the house specialty Dill Pickle soup and actually found it very favorable...would be great with a grilled cheese sandwich.

This is one of my favorite STL places to take out of town guests. Great people and service. Fun and beautiful atmosphere. Even the restrooms are beautiful. Food?

Since this restaurant is known as St. Louis' Most Photographed Restaurant, we always enjoy taking out of town visitors here.. The food and prices are very good, and the portions are more than ample. The "Pick Two" with a half of egg salad sandwich and a salad or a cup of soup is my all time favorite. The Dill Pickle... More

I have eaten here three times. I found the food to be amazing. Their food is creative and delicious. Their ice cream is delightful. The service at the table was always good. The hostesses have been a little on edge for two of the three visits and seem less flexible than great customer service demands. This may be because the... More

Thanks so much for your nice words and bringing the hostess problem to our attention! The door does get hectic if there is a wait and maybe the stress is showing and the hostess doesn't realize it.
